The Keepers are, for different reasons, the horses to spend the rest of their lives with us. They are the ones we hold very close to our hearts. Some have retired from racing late in life, others with injuries or stories to tell.
These are the ones to fall in love with, spend the days cuddling and scratching and giving some well deserved treats and TLC.
- Arctic Grey aka Kevin retired at 9 years old having 79 race starts. Kevin has made himself very much part of the family with his gentlemanly ways and kind nature.
- Benny's Jet aka Benny retired at the age of 11 after 102 races starts. Benny was Chynna's first race winner and has been our go to horse on numerous occasions, even jumping on after 2 years in the paddock! He had a tough racing life and deserves pampering!
- High Expectation aka Scatters has been one of our longest team members. Coming to us almost 5 years ago, Scatters healed from a tendon injury. He is a part of our show team and at the age of 12 now he will stay with us forever.
- Crocka Magic aka Crocka is truely a horse only a mother could love! Personality plus with a huge ego and demanding nature means he always gets spoilt rotten.. And look out if he doesn't! Crocka is a member of our show competition team.
- Mr Fox is the newest addition to the team. He has retired at the grand age of 11 after 83 race starts. Mr Fox will live out her days enjoying the relaxing lifestyle that he so deserves.
- Zagatover aka Roger came to us having just the one start. He has earnt his way into 'The Keepers' when, after a paddock accident, he lost an eye. Although this won't affect his competition future, he will stay until we commence his re-education and hopefully have him a member of our competition team.
- Drop Kick came to us a few years into his retirement. Drop Kick was a very special horse in racing when he and Chynna together won 5 races from just 7 rides. A quirky boy in track work, Chynna drove the 2 hours weekly to ride him. When the opportunity arose for him to come to us, we couldn't pass it up. He came with injuries and deserves only the best life.
- It's A Virtue aka Jimmy came to us following a successful racing career. With the paddock life not suiting him immediately after racing, Jimmy's weight dropped dramatically and, as a result, soundness issues arose. He is rebuilding from a locking stifle and hock as well as muscle wastage. We look forward to Jimmy's future as a lesson horse with his exceptional canter despite the issues he faces.
